Quick Ways to Earn Extra $$$ This Summer

We've all had it happen at one time or another "More Month Than Money". Especially if you are in education like me and there is NO pay in the summer. I LOVE SHOPPING, So I have to get very creative to earn some extra cash to support my habit. Here are a few of my tips;
1.      SELL It On Ebay - If you are like me you are always shopping and sometimes you buy a few of the same thing or you have some things laying around that you don't use or want any more. SELL it on ebay. It is very easy to sell on ebay and could be very lucrative for you. Check it out.
2.      SELL it On Etsy - If you are crafty SELL it on etsy. The difference between ebay and etsy is it has to be handmade. It is very easy to set up a free store on etsy.
3.      SELL it On Craigs List - Craigs list is pretty much like ebay but it's free and local.
4.      SELL it at a YARD SALE - Don't have time to SELL it online, organize a yard sale. Community yard sales usually draw a big crowd just make sure you advertise it well.
5.      SELL it at a FLEA MARKET - Renting a booth at a flea market on weekends is another creative way to earn extra money. You can sell unwanted items from home or new items.
6.      PROVIDE A Service - Babysit, Elderly Care, Pet Sit, House Sit, Run Errands, Handy Work, Yard Work, etc. etc. 
7.      CREATE A Blog - "Pay Per Click" Advertiser will pay you per click on your blog page.
Write and post new posts often on your blog. When visitors click on the Google Ads, Google pays you a share of the advertiser revenue.
8.      DELIVER Newspapers or Telephone Books

9.      RECYCLE - Recycle aluminum, steel and/or copper- Let neighbors and friends know that you are recycling cans and set up a weekly pick up to collect cans and other recyclable items.
10.  GIVE Your Opinion - Research companies pay people to do surveys, taste test and participate in forums. They pay CASH and very WELL!!! Check out the local research companies in your area and register as an interested participant. Stay away from companies that ask you to pay a fee when you sign up as a legitimate survey companies don't ask you to pay money.
11.  SECRET SHOPPERS - There are a lot of companies out there that will pay you to shop. Top businesses will pay you to evaluate your shopping experience. Mystery shopping is an activity that you can do while you are out and about completing your errands for the day. Mystery shoppers are secret shoppers who shop on behalf of a company that wants someone with an objective opinion to evaluate their customer service or perhaps the cleanliness and quality of their facilities or employees. Mystery shopping assignments can be found through various websites, but you should avoid websites that ask you to pay a fee in order to be provided with information about specific mystery shopping.
12.  FIND A SIDE GIG - Sell Avon, Mary Kay, Herbal Life, Organo Gold are just a few of the many companies out there you can become affiliated with and earn extra income and help people at the same time.

13.  TAKE PICTURES- If you enjoy Photography try SELLING your pictures online as stock photos. Anyone can submit their photos to stock photo agencies like If your images are accepted, they will be available for download by subscribers. Each time someone downloads your photos, you get 25 cents. You get paid every time someone uploads your photo.
14.  TEACHER-Many suburban communities and churches have monthly and seasonal (SUMMER) calendars with many activities and classes offered. If you have talents in crafts, computer skills, exercise, dancing or anything else you can teach, speak with your local community center or church staff for more information. Your pay will often depend upon how many students you can sign up.
15.  TURN YOUR HOBBY INTO A BUSINESS - Turn your hobby, skills or expertise into a part-time business. Marketing is KEY.
I am no expert on making money but I am a HUSTLER lol!!! All it takes is some imagination, effort, consistency and action!!! Give it a try... What do you have to lose? You never know, it just might be more lucrative than you thought. Just make sure you do your research first and go for it. I would love to hear what's working for you.... email me at
